Working Together for a Better Future

On Friday, October 8th, students from twenty three different countries joined with people from countries all over the world to create a better future. 10 - 10 - 10 - October 10th, 2010 - was the day chosen for projects that will help lower the carbon dioxide level of our atmosphere.

Here, at San Mateo Adult School, students prepared the ground for more fruit trees. These trees will be planted near the school garden.
Plants of all kinds - trees, bushes, weeds, grasses, shrubs, flowers, vegetables - remove carbon dioxide from the air and replace it with oxygen. Too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is bad. It creates many problems.
In some way, we can say plants remove the negative and create the positive.

What are you doing to remove the negative from your life and your community?

What are you doing to create the positive for yourself and others?

The San Mateo Adult School is committed to helping people create the positive.

On Friday, October 8th, the students created the positive by preparing the ground for fruit trees.
Every day, San Mateo Adult School students create the positive in many ways - learning English, gaining new job and computer skills, understanding US culture and US schools, helping each other, helping themselves, helping the community, helping our world.
